Telegram just recently released an update, which allows you to send files up to 2GB. WhatsApp, on the other hand, only lets you share up to 100MB files. So, if a user wants to send a very large file or a video, they have to be dependent on Dropbox or WeTransfer. Earlier Telegram used to offer support for up to 1.5GB files, and increasing the size will be great a news for many users.

But, what if you are not a Telegram user and don’t want to download the app for this reason. If you are a WhatsApp user and sometimes feel like the messaging app should have offered file sharing limit more than 100MB, then here’s what you can do. There is a cloud storage solution like Google Drive. It lets you upload files up to 50GB in size for free of cost. Google even offers you 100GB space for Rs 130 per month, which is a great offer as you will not find a storage device to save 20GB for less than Rs 150.
